NYLPI Supports Bills Providing Protections to Residents of Adult Care Facilities and Their Families

July 13, 2020

Disability Justice, Legislative, News, Press Release

NYLPI joins fellow disability rights advocates in supporting A.4416C and S.3460A, which provide critical protections to residents of adult care facilities and their families. In a strongly worded letter of support to the bill sponsors, Senator Gustavo Rivera and Assembly Member Richard Gottfried, the advocates called for greater penalties for such all-too-common facilities abuses as appropriating residents’ government benefits, intercepting resident mail, and repeat violations. The bills also seek to make more information about facilities available to residents and prospective residents, including Department of Health complaint investigation reports.
